SHOW & TELL - Dolls


More participants here

In the 80th I have worked for 5 years in a Marketing company called Marlex located in Waterloo, which was very practical for me. At that time they had made a big business probably the biggest one they ever made with "Miss Petticoat" a creation of my American bosses' uncle. You could see her everywhere on plates, cards, clothes, bags, stationary etc.

When I left there I got these 3 dolls as a souvenir. They are very cute. I had given them to my mother for her doll collection, but when she died I took them back. For the moment they are in a bag in a storeroom, because I don't have room to expose them, due to my cat collection ! Or I would need a second house.

Awwww! They are adorable! I wish I had some of the dolls that I had as a child. I only remember every PLAYING with ONE - but I had many! But "Dear Boy" was my only "real baby"! LOL!
